Out of the Blue

The warm streak yesterday and beautiful sunny weather out there is giving me a bit of spring fever. Of course spring is still over two months off, so this is a bit futile. Weird though, since January is usually the roughest month of the year in these parts.

I liked it too, thought they did well together on screen and enjoyed something different for a change. Wonder if they might make a sequel, you know, like the one they never did for True Lies?

Heh cool movie. My girlfriend hax0red my LoveFilm.com (no Enahs that's not a porn site :)) account and rented it for "us" to watch. Surprisingly entertaining. But I quite like Brad Pitt movies, I think he's quite good and he keeps the ladies happy. Not so sure about Angelina tho. Too much lip and plastic looking face. Plus I have never forgiven her for the Tomb Raider movies. God those were awful.

Massage - Check
Pedicure-manicure - Check
Facial.....errr....I would be scared.
The way women take things....I would be scared to get a comment like "you do not think I look good anymore and need a facial". And every guy here can back me up on that one.

That's the reason you give her a gift certificate to the place and let her choose.

For instance, my wife has VERY ticklish soles of her feet, but she found out that the way this place massages/rubs her feet for some reason doesn't bother her, so she found a little bonus by trying something different. Some folks like facials for the "feel" of it, so let her choose what she wants and if she hates it, it's her fault!

You could get her a manicure-pedicure for $30 or so at a local strip-mall sort of place. (It's a nice little hour away from the kids.)

Facial or massage in the $60 range is good.

BTW, our 20 m/o is still breastfeeding every day, so you probably don't know how right you are

If only we can afford it. You have any idea of what such a thing may cost? The thing is, that it's only now that it's starting to be possible, since our youngest have been breastfeeding exclusively up until just this last week. And I know she's dying for a massage.

Oh, my goodness. Your wife must be so "touched out" with being the constant food source. I'm glad she'll have the opportunity to get out for a few hours away. She probably doesn't even realize how much she needs it!

That Valentines Day dinner?
Studies show that they give you smaller portions, increase the price cause they give you a "special V day meal", try to turn your table quicker, and have less than standard service = $100.00+

That's why you take your special one out for a dinner a day or two before the 14th. We usually hit our favorite steak restaurant, feast, and then go to a movie. The dinner (we split a 16 oz NY Strip normally) ends up being about $40 with tip. Movie with drinks, etc. is $20.

Don't go to Chez Chichi for dinner. It's just not worth it.

Facial or massage in the $60 range is good. That gives her a chance to see if she likes the place.

You could also do a bit of googling for "spas" in your neck of the woods and do some price comparison. Your local newspaper will be chock full of ads offering Valentine's Day specials.

Trust me, this is the gift that will give back to you!

My wife never really is into the girly-girl stuff, but she really likes this kind of treatment.
The way you describe her you could just as well be talking about my wife

A package thing would be nice and Good knows she deserves it, but I don't think we can afford it with my current shitty salary.

Nuh-uh. You gotta do it before you leave. Put a card or gift in a special hiding place. You can't just skip it and pick something up afterwards.

You. Just. Don't. If'n. You. Want. Sexx0r. Again.

And here I thought that whole "trading sex for material goods" was only legal in parts of Nevada.


Nope, you pay for it your WHOLLLLLEEE LIFE!
That date? 30 for the movies and 50-100 for dinner?
A hooker in Vegas is a bit cheaper than that!

It is also typical for them to do discounted packaged deals around valentines too. But they can get booked up fairly fast around that time too.

Or, you could go the opposite direction and use the money and get yourself a massage.

Not that it is real science, but the more I've thought about it, if it were taken more seriously, it would fall more under philosophy and those subjects than true science.

I do this for my wife a couple times a year - sometimes one of her female friends goes with her and they have a ball just getting a massage and talking girl talk.

A local place she likes is about $60 for a 45-minute massage or a facial, etc. They are probably fairly typical of the day spas.

My wife never really is into the girly-girl stuff, but she really likes this kind of treatment.

Edit - of course, you can always spring for a couple hundred and give her a nice package thing, but even a massage would get her in the door, show her you care, and see if she even likes the place. You can always send her back for more if she does....

Here's my suggestion - Get her a gift certificate to a local spa for a massage. Tell her that when you return, you'll watch the kids for a weekend afternoon while she goes out and gets spoiled.
